Well worth visiting. Not only is the Holy Grail (if not the actual Holy Grail, which is not proven, it is very old) on display, the chapel is very old and the space feels very holy, for believers and non-believers alike. Wish we could have gotten closer to the Holy Grail itself but it was still a special experience and... More

This chapel/cathedral was lovely. I hired an audio guide and got a lot more history and information, definitely worth it and it's included in the price. I went around midday which I was worried it would be packed ... Happily - missed the crowds! The holy grail was the last place to visit on the audio tour and was fun... More

You might miss this little chapel in Valencia's cathedral: after you enter the front doors, it's to the right. During our visit (July, 2014) it was obscured by some cleaning or restoration work, but just head down the little hallway amidst the scaffolding and canvases, where you'll find... The Holy Grail. All those knights in the middle ages should only... More

I went here to see the holy grail. The cathedral looks grand from the outside and is even better when you enter. The arches and columns are big and carefully crafted. The entry is cheap about 5€ and an audio guide is also provided for some extra money. The holy grail enclosure is seperate and is most peaceful. You can... More

They claim they have the "Holy Grail" and it might very well be it, but that is not the only reason to go. This building is amazing with all the extravagant detail the architects/engineers went to. The wood working is amazing, the fresco is amazing. Leonardo DaVinci and his family worked on this. Definitely do the audio tour, gives great... More

There are numerous alcoves and small chapels within the cathedral. Still an active house of worship. Do get the audio headset. The grail is at stop # 18, the Capilla del santo Caliz. Very impressive.

Worth seeing at least once in your life. There is a very nice outside cafe across the plaza from the Chapel

Valencia Cathedral is packed full of interesting features that make it worth paying 5 euros for a guided tour. The alabaster, carefully angled windows that keep the place cool and direct light to the altar are worth the admission fee alone in my view. Alternatively you can often pop in at the end of services for a more informal look... More

The five euros each we paid, to get into the cathedral, gave us access to the special chapel housing (supposedly) the cup of the Holy Grail. Surely no one can prove or disprove that this is the chalice used by Christ at the Last Supper. Even our audio guide said that the story was a mixture of facts & legend.... More
